Jammu:
Raising serious concern over the dismal power scenario in Jammu with temperature at its peak, BJYM State Spokesperson, Chetan Wanchoo said that it is the irony of the people of Jammu that despite the Power Revenue collection from this region being on the much higher side as compared to Kashmir the Jammu people are made to struggle amidst scorching heat for power and water supply which are the essentials of life during this season.
In a statement issued to media here today, Wanchoo said that the addressing of a press conference of JKPDCL Chairman proves to be a mere eye wash as nothing assured by him is visible anywhere on ground with people’s life having become virtually hell with mercury shooting high with each passing day. He regretted that every year the scenario is the same adding that it is the callous attitude of employees of the Power Department that the people of Jammu are compelled to suffer wriggling in immense heat conditions amidst power supply crisis in summers. 
Wanchoo said that the Covid patients have also badly affected due to this unscheduled power cuts. Ailing patients suffering from coronavirus are using oxygen concentrators at their homes but the unscheduled power cuts have made their live hell. Already they are facing severe hardships in fight against pandemic on the other hand these life saving equipments are also not served the purpose due to the poor power supply, he said.
Asserting that there is an urgent for Lt Governor’s intervention, the BJYM spokesperson appealed to the Principal Secretary Rohit Kansal to immediately review the ground situation by paying a personal visit to grid and power stations and direct the men and machinery of Power Department to come out of slumber and take proactive measures to maintain 24X7 power supply across Jammu so that the people in the City of Temples heave a sigh of relief in the ongoing heat conditions.
